GE upgrades electronic data interchanges services
GE Healthcare IT has launched its Centricity electronic data interchange (EDI) services version 5.2, which introduces new features in healthcare claims and payments process.

The new version of EDI Services offers physician practices the capability to receive proactive notification of payor issues, reports to help practices identify the causes of claim submission issues and new tools to monitor practice performance, GE said. Reports in the new version 5.2 include “warning reports,” which indicate charges that are currently being processed and paid without problems, but which may be affected by pending changes to payor rules.

The company said its web-based Centricity EDI services brings together central financial management tools in an all-payor claims gateway.
